Respecting the hell out of your rockers

I've liked the band Queensrÿche for a long time, and I love the fact that they are supporters of the military, but my respect for them has just gone up a few notches.
Armed forces supporters Queensryche were the victims of a bomb attack during their recent visit to war-torn Iraq, however frontman Geoff Tate insists making the trip was the least the band could do.

The prog metal outfit played a series of shows for military personnel. While in northern Iraq they were forced to take cover when a battle exploded around them, and although none of them were killed, they were left injured and shaken by the experience.

Rock on! And stay safe!
